Disney World has succumbed to the Left’s propaganda on political correctness.
Jordan Zakarin reports for Reuters (via Orlando Sentinel), Feb. 27, 2014, that Walt Disney World will no longer subsidize local chapters of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), in response to BSA’s continued ban on allowing homosexual troop leaders. The Boy Scouts of America voted last spring to allow openly “gay” youth scouts, but kept its ban on openly “gay” troop leaders.
The theme park has donated in the past to the Orlando-area Boy Scouts as part of its “Ears to You” program, which gives money to causes for which its employees volunteer. The Walt Disney Company’s “Standards of Business Conduct” includes protections against “harassment or discrimination” based on, amongst other things, “sex, sexual orientation, and gender identification.”
The Scouts’ Central Florida Council Board President Robert Utsey wrote in an email to local members: ”We recognize that many Scout Units have received financial support over the last several years from this grant opportunity and are sad to see it go. The National BSA Council has reached out to WDW to try to resolve the situation, however, according to WDW, their views do not currently align with the BSA and they are choosing to discontinue this level of support. We will continue to keep an open line of communication with them, but at this time, are unable to reverse their decision.”
Blah. Blah. Blah.
Every year, tens of thousands of LGBT people gather on the first weekend in June at Walt Disney World and other Orlando theme parks and resorts, making it one of the biggest LGBT group celebrations in the world. Disney does not officially recognize the “Gay Day,” but has not discouraged the tradition, which has earned it the wrath of conservative and religious groups. It also has offered health benefits to same-sex partners of employees since 1995, and allows same-sex marriage ceremonies on its grounds.
Disney World either doesn’t know or, more likely, doesn’t care that:
- Captain William Riddle of the Los Angeles Police says, “30,000 sexually abused children in Los Angeles were victims of homosexuals.” (Source: Kaifetz, J. “Homosexual Rights Are Concern for Some,” Post-Tribune, 18 December 1992.).
- 33% of homosexuals ADMIT to minor/adult sex. (Source: Family Research Institute, Lincoln, NE).
- Homosexuals commit more than 33% of all reported child molestations in the United States, which, assuming homosexuals make up 2% of the population, means that 1 in 20 homosexuals is a child molester, while 1 in 490 heterosexuals is a child molester. (Source: Psychological Reports, 1986, 58, pp. 327-37.).
- 73% of all homosexuals have had sex with boys under 19 years of age. (Source: Jay and Young. The Gay Report. Summit Books, 1979, p. 275.)
- Many homosexuals admit that they are pedophiles: “The love between men and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality.” (Source: San Francisco Sentinel, 27 March 1992.)
- There is a notable homosexual group, consisting of thousands of members, known as the North American Man and Boy Love Association ( NAMBLA). This is a child molesting homosexual group whose cry is “SEX BEFORE 8 BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.” This group can be seen marching in most major homosexual parades across the United States.
- Because homosexuals can’t reproduce naturally, they resort to recruiting children. Homosexuals can be heard chanting “TEN PERCENT IS NOT ENOUGH, RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT” in their homosexual parades. A group called the “Lesbian Avengers” prides itself on trying to recruit young girls. They print “WE RECRUIT” on their literature. Some other homosexuals aren’t as overt about this, but rather try to infiltrate society and get into positions where they will have access to the malleable minds of young children (e.g., the clergy, teachers, Boy Scout leaders, etc.).
